Abstract: The welfare era in England and Wales reached its peak in the early 1970's. Since then, the justice model has assumed ideological dominance. The reality of juvenile justice policies and practices seem to be more closely in line with a third model, that of corporatism. The paper sets out the form and terms of corporatism, and argues that it is a more appropriate description of the contemporary Anglo-Welsh juvenile justice system. 63 references, 1 table.
